As a collective group, does anyone really think that Hurdle would play him if he was "fat and out of shape"? I will not deny that he is bigger and has lost some of his speed. I will however contend that he is not "fat and out of shape"? He simply would not be playing. JMHO........ 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

A. His contract

B. who else plays?

Look...they had seen enough and sent him down, so apparently they weren't happy with his play and effort.

Obviously. That's not an indication that he was out of shape, however. That's just an indication that he was playing bad baseball.


Nope, the indication that he is out of shape is his fat belly and waddling running style compared to how he used to run. If your eyes work this is not even a discussion.

Talk about a short "what have you done for me lately" attitude...haha[/quote]

Yes, one day of showing up and playing makes up for showing up completely out of shape for the season, showing very poor effort, and still being out of shape.[/quote]

Why the hatred for Tabata?? He went to the minors and worked hard. Playing well here now[/quote]

Absolutely he is playing harder and I definitely commend him for that. This is not the discussion at all though. It's just whether he got fat this past offseason. The answer is yes. He's still young enough to realize that actually getting your body in shape can make you even better (especially when you're a lead-off guy and corner outfielder). I am very happy with his effort level lately (thought that should go without saying since he's a professional athlete).
